Taking from the combat styles of both Destiny and Dark Souls comes the next horror game to be more about the challenge it presents rather than the sinister story or surroundings it contains. Dolmen by Massive Work Studio is a challenging space adventure that will put you face to face with a multitude of different alien enemies, after crash landing onto Revion Prime, the location of the greatest recorded massacre in galactic history. Dolmen challenges players to adapt to survive against the harsh elements and eldritch monstrosities belonging to a hostile alien world.
The project itself is still a ways from being completed, with an expected launch to be in Q1 of 2019, you can get your hands on a demo by contributing to their Kickstarter. You can check out some gameplay and developer commentary in their Kickstarter trailer:
While it is awesome to see some classic, beloved gameplay styles brought into a new setting, it's also great when the developers put passion into building their games. That is something that these guys have shown. Even Pedro Bastos, Producer at Massive Work Studio, said:
“Dolmen has been a true labor of love over the last year, but we need your support to help us cross the finish line and finally release the game next year. We’d like to thank everyone in advance for their contributions and role in bringing Dolmen to life — it truly means a lot to us."
This project is definitely one that looks like it would be worth backing. Not to mention you will get a demo to try out this awesome game just for helping out! There was also mention that they aim to reach both the PS4 and XB1 consoles on launch, but it depends on how well the Kickstarter does. If it does well enough, we could even expect a Nintendo Switch launch date! Will you be supporting Dolmen?
